The Walking Dead: Josh McDermitt on what’s ahead for Dr. Eugene Porter and Co.

josh mcdermitt the walking dead season 4

With just two episodes left in The Walking Dead Season 4, we’re all on the march to Terminus, right? Er, right? Even if not all of us are exactly aware that that’s what we’re doing? And if it’s a good idea or not. Plus, we’ve got some new folks along for the ride. Dr. Eugene Porter, Sgt. Abraham Ford and Rosita Espinosa — the long-awaited fan favorites from The Walking Dead graphic novels — have swerved off their mission to get the mullet-noggined, trigger-happy Eugene to Washington, D.C., and are tagging along with Glenn and Tara at his insistence. And … Continue reading

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 10 ‘Inmates’: So good to see you again!

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 10 ‘Inmates’: So good to see you again!

After last week’s slow dance with Rick, Carl and Michonne, post prison collapse, the fates of the rest of The Walking Dead prison crew (plus one) were revealed on last night’s shock-and-awe episode, ‘Inmates’. And surprises came equally fast and furious. But I have to say this right out of the gate — in the case of some of the episode’s biggest reveals, a little more show and less tell, perhaps over the span of one additional expository episode, would have made for a much deeper emotional wallop, even if they will be fleshed out in future outings. Show me … Continue reading

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 9: "After"

The Walking Dead Season 4 midseaon premiere, which debuted last night, is aptly titled “After” — and, as it implies, the Robert-Kirkman-penned, Greg-Nicotero-directed episode dives right into the post-prison travails of the survivors. Beginning with Rick, Carl and Michonne. • RELATED: Channel Guide talks The Walking Dead Season 4B with Greg Nicotero! “After” opens at the smoking, walker-infested remains of the prison, from which everyone has fled but Michonne. Could it that be our brave woman-warrior — who, not so long ago, could barely even tolerate Andrea’s company — is having the toughest time leaving the first home and family she … Continue reading

The Walking Dead Season 4 The Governor

[SPOLIER ALERT: If you are not caught up on the first half of The Walking Dead Season 4 and do not wish to know what has happened to that point, please read no further.] Has it kept you up nights, Walking Dead fans — wondering what will become of Rick Grimes and Co. now that Hershel’s lost his head, The Governor’s a goner and the Grimes gang is splintered, grieving and on the run?

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 6: ‘Live Bait’

Walking Dead Governor Megan

Well, well. Maybe ol’ Hershel is right after all and you really can come back from the bad things that happen to you here in the walker-pocalypse. Because of all the gents I expected to remain the epitome of ice-blooded, comrade-killing evil, Philip “The Governor” Blake is it. And yet, there he was, the most sinister guy we’ve yet to encounter on The Walking Dead, broken, abandoned and facedown in the street before the vision of a little girl in a window brought him back to his feet and back to life as a — gulp! — lion-hearted family protector … Continue reading

The Walking Dead Season 4: David Morrissey on the return of The Governor

The Walking Dead Governor David Morrissey

The moment that hordes of The Walking Dead Season 4 fans have been waiting for — even if they had forgotten now that we’re already several episodes in — finally arrived last night with a last-second shot of The Governor (David Morrissey) quietly, menacingly, observing the chaos at the prison. He didn’t say a word, and we couldn’t really see his expression, but you have to know that if he could have been aware of all the sickness and carnage going on inside those walls, it would have only warmed his black heart. It’s a testament to how effective Morrissey’s … Continue reading

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 5: ‘Internment’

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 5: ‘Internment’

Given everything that happened during last night’s claustrophobic, emotionally draining, completely nerve-jangling episode of The Walking Dead — aptly called ‘Internment’ — it seems kind of a shame to jump right to the end. But, really, how do you not? The Governor’s at the gate. In those few seconds, the tidy bit of episode assessment I was about to do about parents and children, hope for the future versus hope for the day and the notion of sacrifice suddenly took on a dozen more tentacles when the cameras went sidling off to the woods and the man lurking there turned his … Continue reading

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 4: ‘Indifference’

the-walking-dead-season-4-episode-4

How you feel about “Indifference,” the latest episode of The Walking Dead, likely depends on what you believe makes a good leader, coupled with your idea of what drives the prison crew to solider on: the hope of a return to some sort of civilized and thriving society, or a day-to-day struggle to stay one step ahead of a horrible demise that will eventually catch up. If you have no hope for the former, how do you muster the will to take on the latter? At the heart of this tale are two leaders — one quietly but resolutely working … Continue reading
